Total Camping trip to Westport - May 2014

Day 1- we set off late from Dublin & the plan was to drive as far as the Croagh Patrick Camping Park for our first night. Unfortunately asfter a long journey (bank holiday Friday traffic) it turned out the Camping Park was still closed for the season. Rather than searching for another camping park in the area we decided to wild camp at Old Head pier close to Old Head Wood. This small pier is set overlooking Clew Bay with a beautiful beach beside it. Along with another small Campervan we enjoyed a calm night overlooking the Bay.

Day 2 – We set off on the Murrisk Loop an enjoyable walk through the base of the mountain over Murrisk Village. After this loop we decided to give the Croagh Patrick summit a go. It would be fair to say we underestimated the challange of this climb & did not bring enough water or food - be warned. The climb is tough going with loose scree the entire journey but the sense of acievement once we made the top was fantastic. Over all it took around 3.30 hours of hard going.

After this great walk we had food in The Tavern which served out fantastic food and provided the fuel I needed for the drive back to Westport House.

Day 3- We spent nights 2 & 3 in Westport House Camping Park. This Park has fantastic facilities for campers, great toilets , clean up area, showers etc. The staff are very helpful & the site is run with good efficiency. This is a site dedicated to campers with children with a whole host of on site activities to keep the kids entertained.I would recommend this park for families but if you are a couple looking for a secluded night away it may be a little too busy.

We set up camp beside some friends who were also camping in Westport House. As we were staying for 2 night the awning was put up, chairs & table were put out & the BBQ was thrown on.

Day 4 – The next day was spent exploring the beautiful beaches in this part of Ireland & sampling the great pubs and restaurants in Westport town,

Till the next time
